Command Center (formerly Call Center) Overview
For your convenience, Lunchbox includes a Command Center module.
The Command Center is a powerful tool allowing your staff to manually place orders for guests, edit orders, a customer lookup, view guest order history, save an order as a quote, and view all placed orders. This can be done on all Service Types and for Multiple Locations, utilizing Lunchbox’s location finder and POS integration.
Table of Contents
This guide will show you how to access the Command Center and it’s features, look up an existing customer, register a new customer, and place an order for a customer.
A guest calls into the phone number associated with your location’s Command Center→a staff member picks up and places the order for the guest→the guest receives a confirmation email for their order→orders are directed to the POS in the same manner an online order would take place.
You can associate a 1-800 number or your location’s phone number with the Command Center. When a guest calls this number an authorized staff member will be able to take the guest’s phone order. This feature can be set up for multiple locations and Lunchbox’s location finder and POS integration will be able to connect the order with the correct location.
The guest will call the number you provide on your website or receipt in order to access the Command Center. If you have multiple locations, each location can have their own phone number to associate with the Command Center.
